The Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world
But it is under threat from widespread, rapid and damaging set of industrial developments.
The Queensland Government is fast-tracking the dredging and dumping of millions of tonnes of seabed and rock in the Reef’s waters, and a near-doubling of bulk carriers cutting through the Reef.
The federal government is considering approval of these developments, including the world’s biggest coal port at Abbot Point, 50 km from the Whitsunday Islands.
It’s your Reef, but you’re going to have to fight for it. @wwf_australia #voteforthereef #greatbarriereef #yourreef #Australianpolitics #unesco #socialmediastorm
